Digital data expertise
We enable understanding of the dynamic digital landscape by providing specialist research data infrastructure.
IFE’s Digital Observatory offers state-of-the-art research infrastructure for tracking, collecting, and analysing dynamic digital data.
We operate and maintain a databank - the Australian Twittersphere - which is an ongoing collection of public tweets from approximately 530,000 Australian Twitter accounts.
Specialist data scientists and data engineers provide data-related services such as collection, pre-processing, and analysis.
Streamlining research data collection and processing
We collaborate with researchers to determine their data and analytical requirements, and provide raw data and/or analytical outputs in a useful format that reduces or eliminates the time researchers spend on data collection, storage, tidying and pre-processing.
This allows researchers to focus on analysis and interpretation.
